Upcoming Conference

Material + Meaning

Louisiana State University - Baton Rouge, Louisiana   |   October 04 - October 06, 2018

Material + Meaning brings together shared thematic concerns at the forefront of contemporary photographic practices. The widespread exploration of the aesthetic and physical possibilities of photography points toward a renewed understanding of the photograph as material object. We are interested in putting these investigations of the tactile and tangible in conversation with the harder-to-pin-down social and political concerns of our time. What can photography help us understand about power, truth, transparency, and reliability?  We look to artists who synthesize materiality and meaning to act as stewards of interpretation and representation---framing and shaping visual culture and politics. We hope this conference will provide a platform for us to connect and reflect on these themes within our region and beyond. 

Interested in presenting? Click here for details. Deadline May 1st.
